SCT device with custom tuning written by a highly reputable custom tuner with lots of 6.0 background would be my choice. Any generic tuning device that has one fits all tuning (canned tuning) can be semi-safe in the lower power levels, but will never be as dialed in as custom tuning for transmission shifting and overall seamless performance. There are less than a handful of qualified individules that I would trust for custom tuning when it comes to the 6.0 Powerstroke. Having the Edge monitor is definitely a nice feature to have, especially since it allows you to monitor critical data. I would probably try it and see how you like it, don't load it with anything more than a milder street peformance tune, and if you tow, keep it stock or a very very mild tow tune. Too much advanced injection timing and fuel is what pops the hg's most of the time on the 6.0's, as the cyl pressures become too much for the 4 headbolts per cyl to hold. One word of caution, once you experience the higher power levels of a tuning device, you will never be the same. And custom tuning really makes you never even think of operating in stock mode again.
